pay for your tickets fast and secure with contactless


Contactless payments are currently only available on pronto


Contactless is a quick, easy and secure way to pay for your bus travel. Contactless payments can be made for any ticket up to the value of £30. Instead of paying with cash, you can pay with contactless by placing your credit or debit card on the reader of the ticket machine.
